Ramirez To Cubs Completes Garza Deal With Texas
ARLINGTON (AP) — The Rangers have sent right-hander Neil Ramirez to the Chicago Cubs to complete the trade that brought right-hander Matt Garza to Texas last month.
The deal was completed Friday, after the Cubs had claimed Ramirez off waivers. The pitcher was assigned to Double-A Tennessee.
Ramirez led the Double-A Texas League with 127 strikeouts and was 9-3 with a 3.84 ERA in 21 starts for Frisco.
Texas previously sent right-handers C.J. Edwards and Justin Grimm, along with infielder Mike Olt, to the Cubs. When Garza was acquired Garza on July 22, the deal called for the Rangers to send one or two more players to be named later to the Cubs.
Garza, who can become a free agent after the season, is 3-1 with a 4.32 ERA in six starts for Texas.
